Legos!  I am currently building a city.  Each building has over 2000 parts!  I enjoy doing this on cold winter nights.

Who would you most like to meet and why?
Any successful entrepreneur. As one myself, I am fascinated by their stories, especially their reasons for building their companies.

We, at Tecmark, have a very defined goal to reach by 2025. I am on a mission to achieve this.
